Jim Katen had told me how to do it in the past but I can't remember and I can't find the post.

How do you set the field behind the subject?

Roof Covering Material:id="Verdana">

For instance, I want the field after "roof covering material" to be 12 point, new times roman, normal.

How to I set that field and program it into the document so its always there?

The setting is in "styles." If you modify the style, there will be a line for "style for following paragraph." Just define a style for the following paragraph and stick it in there.

If you find yourself changing styles frequently, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to them.

Office 2010 sequence to do that follows (older versions similar).

  • Right click on the ribbon.
  • Lower left corner click "Customize" button.
  • Scroll down in the "Categories" list to Styles.
  • Find the style you want and add an appropriate keystroke. Word tells you if that key combination is already in use.
  • You can save this in your Normal template or in your report template (whichever is appropriate).
